Subject: [RFC PATCH v3 45/61] e2fsck: make default smallest RA size to 1M

From: Wang Shilong <wshilong@....com>

If we have a smaller inodes per group, default ra size could
be very small(etc 128KiB), this hurts performances.

Tune above 128K to 1M, i see pass1 time drop down from
677.12 seconds to 246 secons with 32 threads.
